Question for long-time Marantz owners.

I'll be receiving my replacement 7009 tonight.

Is there any way to back-up settings from my current 7009 so I can restore them to the replacement?

LOL! I can vouch for that. My new 7009 is far cooler than the old Onkyo TX-NR905 that it replaced.

In fact, I think my home theater may be a bit chilly without it.

Question - does the Bluetooth support bidirectional communication?
